If you head northwest from Dali, you can find the fantastic Cang Shan Mountain. Roughly translated into English, its name is the Mountain of Holy Golden Eagle and its highest summit Malong Peak rises to over 13,500 feet (4.122 meters). The peak is characteristic as it is snowy throughout the entire year. There is an option to take the cable car to the top.
The photographers love Cong Shan for fantastic photo opportunities. If you are up for hiking you can enjoy the breathtaking landscape of alternating summits and brooks. At the foot of the mountain, you can find several temples that belong to Bai cultural heritage, as well as the famous Nine Dragon Virgin Pool.
